it he saw the chairman of the committee senator feinstein try to brag an argument out of him. he was hesitant to go there because he wanted to add leer to secrecy. but because of the memo we're having the discussion. and it's being lead on the other side by the opponents ron and j rockefeller, people like that and so you know when i look at the evidence, one of the things you see is that people like barack obama who were opposed more or less are skeptical of the policy, once they are actually in in power faced with the realities you see them swing over and so it's become a f you think about if we are going to take on al qaeda, and i think the evidence is that it allows you to kill the leaders of al qaeda with much fewer civilian casualties than a bombing campaign, than boots on the ground or anything else. so it is an effective program for that. the two things i would say is the buildback back from popular been is-- the secretary thing is who is reviewing. we've got really a group of people, all work together every day sort of doing this process, trying to say to us don't worry w
